Spirit will be fine. I'm sure he can tolerate a little less attention, and you have to focus on MJ. I hope the chemo knocks it out quickly and permanently.

Adding my thoughts and prayers to all the others. So sorry it wasn't better news. I have great confidence in you, Jim, and in MJ, as well as in Spirit.

I believe together, you will all come out on the other side, and you have guardian angels smiling down on you, not to mention this entire forum.

Don't worry about not posting much, but I hope you'll keep us generally posted, because you are very deeply loved here.

Lots of love and hugs

Thank you all for your wonderful support over the last year and now....MJ said to me today that we are not going to give this cancer our total focus. We are going to spend time each day having fun and doing things we love. Today we all walked thru the park in the light snow next to the lake and just soaked in the beauty all around. She wanted a few hours of chat without mentioning cancer.

God, I love this fabulous wife of mine. She is the strongest person I've ever met and I owe it to her to stay strong and positive. I'm going to be the fun police for the next several months. Believe it or not she is still insisting on going to Florida and already made contact with the Flagler Cancer Center in St. Augustine who could give her the chemo treatments. Her exact words where if she is going to feel like shit she may as well sit on a beach in the warmth and watch the world walk by.......thank you all again.
